Each of these introduced models studies matters carrying ethical importance related to various areas. These researches in the aspect of establishments focus on whether the establishment applications are generally suitable to ethical standards or testing ethical appropriateness of manager behaviours. However, this research aims to introduce at which level the job satisfaction of employees, which are effected by factors such as physical conditions, payment types, social and safety opportunities and management types, are affected by the applications of managers in the extent of job ethics.

Besides, it is introduced by correlation and regression analysis that compliance of manager behaviours with ethical principles affects the job satisfaction level of employees drastically.
